Markets pulled back on Tuesday after a fairly strong start on Monday, this was mainly led lower by big tech. ARK Funds felt the sting too across the board. ARKX performed the best out of the group, with a 0.6% loss on the day, while ARKG did the worst, down 4.8%. The gains from the past year are slowly sliding away, but Cathie Wood may have something up her sleeve, as she is constantly reshuffling her ETFs to stand up to market headwinds.
ARK Invest has been the talk of Wall Street over the past couple of years, outperforming the market and solidifying its place among the big players in the investments world. Wood is the founder and head of this investment house, and many have compared her rising star to the likes of Warren Buffett.
